I'm not sure if that was about a breakup or an airline loyalty program, either way it was beautiful.

I'm pretty sure this is a joke but I'll chime in anyway. I won't go into detail about what I do for work but I'm mid-20s and flying frequently (and often longhaul) at my age is actually kind of...

It all depends on your flying patterns but for the purpose OP has raised (i.e. infrequent flying in J/F on longhaul routes without paying J/F prices) I think outright redemptions are a fool's errand....

There are some credit cards with rather high Qantas point earn rates floating around. If you don't fly frequently that's probably the best way to build up Qantas points. Something to note though is...

I've got a couple of boxes full of the things, a lot of them unopened, that I've been wondering what to do with. Hadn't thought of donating them but it's a good idea.

Which airports are you thinking of where other OW airlines have arrangements with local lounges to the exclusion of BAEC members/BA passengers? I can't think of any of the top of my head but the case...

The main attraction is that I know the HEX schedule and I know exactly how long it will take to get to T5, even at 5pm in the evening. A cab during peak hour is a less certain proposition,...

The reason the HEX gets away with their pricing - including the peak hour surcharge - is that they're competing against London traffic. 9 times out of 10 the HEX is faster than a minicab, especially...
